How to Control Swarming Bees

TDS Reader Contributors

"I have been trying to get bees away from my house for the last seven years. I've had the house treated five times and called the bee exterminator three times with no luck. The bees come back to the very same area. I can't afford treatment every four months. I heard from a neighbor that the previous owners had the same problem. I think there must be a way to get rid of the bees. I need help. Can anyone help?"

These hard bodied, wingless insects feed on blood but can survive for weeks without eating at all when living in carpet, soil, or grass. So how do we rid ourselves and our pets of these disease-carrying insects?

But are there valid, healthier options when it comes to repelling our fine buzzing and biting friends? You bet!

Natural Flea Prevention

TDS Reader Contributors

"I was wondering if there are any home remedies to get rid of fleas. I live in town and the house next door is about three feet from my house. They had extremely bad fleas and their yard is full of them. Anytime we go outside, if we are in that yard, we bring fleas into my home. I have two indoor cats and a toddler so I do not want to have to spray my house anymore than necessary."

"I've got mice in my garage. As I have to store car seats, kid toys, and other things I don't want doused with mouse wastes, I'm looking for a way to drive them out, short of getting a garage cat. Any "scarecrows" or other non-lethal ways of driving them off?"

Natural Insect Repellents

TDS Reader Contributors

"Does anyone have any ideas and information about natural or organic insect repellents, especially something that would be safe for children? Many commercial repellents contain DEET which may be cancer-causing."
